The Pittsburgh Steelers have been silent through much of free agency as the team attempts to stay under the salary cap.
After placing the franchise tag on pass rusher Bud Dupree, the Steelers spent the next few days restructuring contracts of other players. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, star corner Joe Haden and others had their contracts turned into signing bonuses to create room for Dupree.
The team signed former Los Angeles Chargers fullback Derek Watt to a three-year deal earlier this week. That move gave the Steelers their second Watt brother – including pass rusher T.J. Watt.
Other than that, though, the Steelers have largely been silent. Until now, that is. On Thursday night, Pittsburgh agreed to a two-year contract with offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski.
He announced the news in a post on social media.
Guess what Steelers fans…

Wisniewski has been a part of two of the last three Super Bowl winning teams – with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017 and Kansas City Chiefs in 2019.
After a standout career at Penn State, the Oakland Raiders drafted Wisniewski in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft.
He starred at the high school level in Pittsburgh before leaving for Penn State. Now he’s back and playing for the Steelers.
